[Xen-devel] [RFC][PATCH] add tlsf option for xmalloc

This patch is a first step for replacing the current xmalloc
engine with a tlsf-based engine.  The first patch simply adds
Nitin Gupta's current tlsf-kmod files to Xen and the second
modifies them (and xmalloc) to adapt them to work with Xen.

The tlsf engine can be turned on (and then overrides the xmalloc
engine) with a Xen boot option of "tlsf".  This defaults to off,
so the patch should have no effect without the boot option.

Note that this is compile-tested but not run tested yet.  I
thought I'd get feedback on the approach before I get much
